CHENNAI: Passengers shuttling between Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram and other parts of Kerala can rejoice. The hugely popular Thiruvananthapuram Mail, a superfast train, will have German-make Linke-Hoffman-Busche (LHB) coaches from January 18, senior officials in Southern Railway have confirmed.
This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.

CHENNAI: Passengers shuttling between Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram and other parts of Kerala can rejoice. The hugely popular Thiruvananthapuram Mail, a superfast train, will have German-make Linke-Hoffman-Busche (LHB) coaches from January 18, senior officials in Southern Railway have confirmed.
This will be the fourth express train in the zone, after Mangalore Express, Pandian Express and Rockfort Express, to get LHB coaches.
Sources in the zone say that they have a holding of around 250 LHB coaches. Two rakes of No 12623/12624 Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be converted into LHB stock from January 18.
The composition of Chennai Central - Thiruvananthapuram - Chennai Central Mail trains will be revised as: First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier - 1, AC 2-tier - 1, AC 3-tier - 4, Sleeper Class - 11 & General Second Class - 3 coaches.
LHB coaches are equipped with better safety features as compared to the regular Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches. They don't pile up during accidents and are made of aluminium and hence are lighter and can be pulled faster by locomotives.
In addition, LHB coaches are also resistant to jerks and give a pleasant travelling experience. This will come as a relief to regular travellers on the train as it is a 17-hour journey.
Indian Railways is gradually phasing out ICF coaches replacing them with LHB coaches as per the recommendations of the Kakodkar committee report. Officials say lesser lives could have been lost in recent derailments if the committee report had been implemented earlier.
Towards this goal, coach-production companies like ICF in Chennai and Rail Coach Factory (RCF) in Kapurthala have already switched over to LHB-coach production in full-swing.

That'd be a temporary arrangement for the next 4 months post which they'd reduce seats in GN quota and resume TQ back to 34 (or more!). They'd never let go the TQ revenue of twenty 2A seats for good. ;)

34 is tough. Now it will be having just 1.5 2A. compared to previous 2.5
So it will be for sure below 25, even if they change
